You will come out reeking of beef--but "ahh" smells so good. Means that you were at a real traditional, old-style, coal fired BBQ joint with great marinated meats. Delish! Gotta go here if you are in LA

Very helpful as we were not familiar with there menu. Good Charcoal BBQ. That's their specialty so if you're looking for other Korean dishes those are limited.

Totally fast food like but at a grill. The beef was amazing, short rib pretty good. Chicken good. The squid was even ok! The cold noodle soup? Just not my thing. This is not fancy, or even mid way. It's sort of a dive. But in a good way. Will go back!

Nothing else to say, simply the best Korean BBQ in LA. I tried several others in town, both in Korea town and else where in the city, but I always come back here. It's not a fancy restaurant, so don't dress up. And you'll end up smelling like BBQ for sure. But the food is amazing and authentic, I can't... More

This is an amazing place, that still does the whole charcoal thing. Every time I come to LA from Vegas, I have to eat here. The Korean Short Ribs are amazing, and cooking it over the Charcoal gives it that flavor. Personally I like tasting the meat as well as the heat. I you like the char-broiled meat, this is... More

My son lives in L.A. and eats in Korea town a lot. This was his 2nd favorite spot. Couldn't get to his top spot because of an accident and resulting traffic jam. Don't know how the other place could have topped this one except perhaps it has a more appetizing name. Very gracious and attentive staff. After picking meats to... More

Excellent Korean BBQ experience. The food was outstanding (especially the thin marinated beef) and the service was very attentive. As you'd expect, the bbqs are literally in front of you on each table so be prepared to smell a little of smoke by the end of the evening. The only drawback for us was that you are required to order... More

The only way we would have found this restaurant was if a local would take us there and that is exactly what happened. After going to Korea two years ago I was craving Korean Barbacue and a friend of ours suggested this restaurant. I must warn travellers that it does not look like much from outside (or even from inside)... More

My First time in a Korean BBQ place. It was recommended by a Korean sales clerk in the fashion district and wow. It was a great experience to go there. Please order the shirt ribs. You cook your meat in your table. It's delicious and fair in price. Great concept. You can tell this is the place for that!!
